I NEED to make up a set list for Saturday’s show at the CCA in Glasgow with Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton…I’ve been asked to play a more acoustic-y set.
In light of the request I’ll base the set around my wee Collings acoustic and banjo…and jut put in a couple of steel guitar/slide songs.
After a wee rehearsal and taking some timings I settle on a set list, make up some graphics to promote the show then do a Facebook livestream from the garden to let folks know about the last-minute show and that we have a guest list offering (almost) half-price tickets.
I’m not long finished and the sun comes out, so after lunch I cut the grass and tidy up a little before getting back onto my main tasks of the day – trying to finalise some more USA bookings in 2019 and 2020 for my visa itinerary and more GDPR data protection stuff.
GDPR comes into force on Friday – that means this is really the last opportunity to email people on my lists that haven’t yet re-subscribed. The ‘old’ lists will, sadly, be deleted tomorrow (Thursday). I do the same for the local community trust mailing list.
There’s much more to the GDPR compliance than mail lists though..web-based contact forms and mail list sign-ups all need to meet the stringent new criteria, privacy policies developed and made available, online store customers’ data dealt with and various other protection and security measures.
I accompany Margaret on her ‘couch to 5k’ outing…she does well again, although her knee is still hurting.
Duncan has chosen some photos form yesterday – when we’re back there’s time to send him high resolution copies before we head to Betty and Joe’s. Their broadband has switched over today and I offered to get it all rolling…we’ve been invited for dinner too 🙂
